This is Angry Bean, here today to talk to you about Gourmet Coffee. Okay, now coffee comes from various places all around the globe. It comes mainly from Brazil. And, then it also comes from all over Latin America Countries. Columbia being another one. Mexico and so on.
Then you have got the African nations as well - Uganda, Ethiopia and Kenya. And, then you have the Asian countries as well. And, even some places like Australia now as well are doing certain types of coffee.
So, what is Gourmet Coffee? Okay, Gourmet Coffee is basically coffee that is being picked purely for the taste qualities and profiles that it gives you. Okay, so if you are subscribing for coffee, then what you will be getting is a different coffee every single subscription which allows you to taste different profiles.
So, if I start from the beginning you have got coffee blends.
Coffee blends are basically were brought about so that you can basically imagine like a mixing pot getting lots of different flavours, anything coffee and bringing them altogether. Almost like an ingredient cupboard.
I will take some from Kenya. I will take some from Colombia. I will mix them together and I will get this sort of profile. Maybe if I mix it 40 percent this, 60 percent that it will taste a bit more like this. I am just basically playing around with those flavours.
So, there is a misconception that blended coffee is cheaper. Now, that is because obviously some roasters do put a good coffee in, but they are only putting 30 percent of it in. And, then they are throwing a little bit of cheaper coffee in after that to sort of bulk back up. Then obviously that is a little bit cheaper. And, unfortunately that is what a lot of roasters did do.
But, now blends. Well, blends can be quality. You don't have to have honestly a blend of different coffees. If I get some Brazilian Esperanza and some Colombian Suprema, put them together, they are two good coffees. They are not going to get bad coffee from blending them.
So, the negative perception that really doesn't hold true anymore.
Why do people then go forth with what is called a single origin or a single estate coffee?
Essentially, you are looking for a particular taste. Okay, so going back to my coffee. If I pick this one here, a single estate Esperanza. I am obviously looking for a specific profile, which I associate to coffee when it comes to this particular farm.
Okay, so what would be the same farm. Well typically, you are going to see the same type of soil. So, you are going to have the same sort of plants that are being used. You are also going to have the same growing conditions. Unlikely, you would find it growing on a mountain and a rain forest on the same location. You would typically find one or another.
And, then you will also find the same harvesting techniques are being used. So, if they were picked by hand, then the whole crop is likely to have been picked by hand. Okay, so we have got this consistency going through.
And, then you got the drying. You know, how the coffee was actually dried out, and the washing methods that we used. All of these things will be typically the same state. So, it gives you a very descriptive way of tasting that coffee because what it will have is certain notes which you can pick up in the coffee.
Now, if you are into coffee you might be able to then tell well this coffee is from X part of the world, or this coffee is from essentially I think it is from this estate. So, you are looking for these sort of tones that you would associate with that particular coffee.
When you blend it, then it obviously becomes difficult to do that because you are taking different elements from different parts. Sometimes from the world, sometimes different parts of the country. And, you are basically coming together with a taste that is for all intents and purposes unique.
So, the unique taste of a blend is created by the roaster. And, that can be good, and that can be bad obviously. Depending on what the roaster is trying to do. If the roaster is still looking for quality and a specific type of taste. Then obviously it is going to be a good coffee.
But, if you are wanting example a coffee from a certain part of the world, maybe a certain estate and basically taste those sort of notes that you will find in the coffee that are particular to that particular estate. Then obviously single origin is what you want.
So, you experiment and like to try different things. Then single origin is quite good. You can do that by your subscription. If you'd like to have the same product all the time. You can obviously do that on subscription. But, essentially you may be looking at a blend then. Or, maybe you will stick with one single origin type of coffee when you like it.
And, that is basically the gist of why to buy different types of coffee.
Anymore questions? Please post them. There is only one thing left that you need to do and that is go buy some of that, or go and by some of that. Because I can't remember which way it is. I think it is. There it is. Go and buy it. Go and buy it now. Arghhhhhh!

To be honest even if I didnt like their coffees Id want to buy off them. So the fact that I do is a bonus...
